Happy New Year!! Happy New You??

How did you do in 2010?

Did you achieve all of your goals, dreams and hopes in 2010?  

We are only a week away from the end of the month of January. How is this year looking for you?  What would you like to achieve in 2011?  Are you starting 2011 the same way you started or ended 2010 and expect different results?

Many women start each January with the same New Year resolutions. Here are examples of a few “This is going to be MY year!” or “I am going to make some BIG changes in my life.”  “This year I am going to………”  The list usually looks something like this:

  • Get fit or lose weight
  • Stop smoking
  • Fix my finances
  • Improve my relationships
  • Pursue a hobby
  • Make a career change
  • Spend more ‘me time’

Generally speaking, most New Year’s resolutions do not work because they are not made on the basis of sound goal setting.  In addition, to setting goals we have to change our thought process in order to identify the barriers that prevent us from living the life we really want.

How are you going to make 2011 the year that things will happen for you? You will have to decide. When we are going after something that we say we really want, we have to decide how much we really want it and let our actions reflect that desire.

Our actions are a reflection of our desire to achieve. Let’s look at one of the common resolutions listed above, smoking. Some people say that they want to give up smoking but never take the necessary action or seek the support in order to stop smoking and as a result each year quitting smoking becomes their New Year’s resolution. Although, we looked at smoking the same principle applies to any of the above.

If we want a result, we have to equip ourselves with the tools to achieve that result. For example, if we want to bake a cake we have to ensure we have all the right ingredients, in the right quantities to make that cake.  It’s the same in life, we all want to have a good life, but are we using the correct ingredients to make the life we desire?

This is what I will be sharing with women on the 29th January 2011 at the ‘Jump Start Your Life’ event.  I will be showing women the ingredients they require to immediately start making and living the life they desire.

‘Jump Start Your Life’ will provide women with:

•           an increased level of motivation and empowerment

•           an increased  self-esteem

•           created an individual personal development plan

•           acquired the skills to effectively set achievable goals for both work and personal life           

•           tools to harmonise their life and  find  a work-life balance that is right for them

    Like yourself I’m a single parent with a few children. I’d really like to build up my confidence and self esteem so that I can do the things I love and am good at. Please can you let me know if it would be possible to have coaching with you. I’m quite shy so I dint mind starting this over the phone.

    I look forward to communicating with you

    Enjoyed reading that it all makes sense and it is the truth. Committing to something requires actions not just lip service!
